MOUNTAIN HOME, Ark. (AP) - The body of a drowning victim has been recovered from a northern Arkansas lake.

Baxter County Sheriff John Montgomery says the body of 70-year-old Charles Hogan Daniels of Jordan was recovered shortly before noon Monday by Arkansas Game and Fish divers in about 115 feet of water in Lake Norfork.

Montgomery says Daniels was on a boat with three other people on Sunday afternoon when he reportedly jumped from the boat into the water and disappeared near an area known as Jordan Island.

Montgomery says searchers using sonar located the body late Sunday night.

The sheriff said the death has been ruled an accidental drowning.
